CE-GY 6053 Monitoring Cities

3 Credits
The world’s urban population is growing by nearly 60 million every year. Although the rise of mega-cities has captured much attention, most of the world’s urban growth will take place in a small to mid-size cities providing potential for positive change through science and engineering. Considering cities as a combination of a networks of constructed systems, natural systems and human systems, this course introduces approaches for monitoring the function and state of wellness of the urban environment including networks for moving people, goods, water, waste and energy: from pipelines to the telecommunication network, and from freeways to mass transit. We will examine methods for tracking the state of health of a city’s infrastructure, environment, ecosystem, and the exposure condition of its inhabitants.
